At about 7:25 a.m. on Friday the Marsh Harbour Police Station received a call from a member of the community who reported a strange male wearing all black in the area of Murphy Town.

According to Abaco’s Officer in Charge, Noel Curry, police officers responded in an unmarked vehicle and spotted the man whom officers identified as Jeffrey King; alias “Bongo” of Kemp Road.
